A La Carte (3/30)

Rescued - I didn’t cry while reading this article. I just had something in my eye. Honest. “When I was just a little girl, like a wee little thing, I had a different mom and dad. And they were kind to me, but they had hurts and they had addictions and they didn’t know how to take care of themselves, much less a wee girl and her little brother.”

Goodnight Moon - A strange and unexpected article, this. “For all the years that I had been reading Goodnight Moon to some child or another, I had been picturing its author as a plump, maternal presence, someone like the quiet old lady in the rocking chair whispering, ‘Hush’.” The truth is quite surprising.

Greater Than Our Hearts - In honor of the birthday of Charles Wesley, Matthew Smith is offering a Wesley track as a free download. Get it today because tomorrow will be too late!

United Families Dividing Churches - I find this article a kind and helpful introduction to and critique of the Family Integrated Church movement. 

A Currency Without Currency - Canada is getting rid of the penny. Do you see how progressive and cool we are?

Pilgrim’s Progress for Kids - Over at Redeemed Reader you can now download A Children’s Guide to The Pilgrim’s Progress.

Keeping Up to Date with Greek - I forgot almost all my Greek years ago, but I have it on good authority that many others try to keep it up. This article deals with the subject.
